VersaLifts™ are the best new accessory for your gym bag.
Programming in the world of functional fitness relies heavily on hybrid training. This methodology regularly combines Olympic weightlifting and strength building movements with plyometric and cardiovascular-intensive movements. With the squat serving as the foundation of Olympic weightlifting, this style of programming can present a footwear challenge. Weightlifting shoes are ideal for squatting, but inhibit agility movements. Minimalists training shoes are great for staying agile, but typically have a low heel-to-toe drop making squat movements difficult for athletes with limited ankle mobility. The need for a viable third option exists.
BEGINNER TO ELITE
Beginner athletes will find VersaLifts™ incredibly useful as they develop their mobility and learn proper technique. For elite and competitive athletes, VersaLifts™ are the perfect solution for workouts where some movements benefit from an elevated heel (e.g. overhead squats and pistols) and other movements require the mobility of your cross-training shoes (e.g. double unders and box jumps).
VersaLifts™ are ideal for any combination of:
- Squats (Pistol, Overhead, Front)
- Wall Balls
- Box Jumps
- Double Unders
VersaLifts™ are also an effective coaching tool. Good coaches help their clients improve mobility. The layered feature of VersaLifts™ allows you to systematically decrease the heel lift height for your clients as their mobility improves.
